Microsoft has truly turned things around. Amazing

With all the pre-release negativity Sony had a chance to deal a fatal blow to MS. Sadly Sony's E3 was a soonzefest (the highlight being the shot they took at MS about DRM) and also Sony chose to basically release the same console as PS3 but with better hardware (still inferior to a computer but unlike Xbox One the PS is severely limited in terms of applications outside of gaming).

MS decided to cover all the markets and applications and fixed their DRM mistakes. Both came out of the gates hot (Gamefaqs polls showed the majority of the site thought the Xbox One would hardly sell anything... Then they flipped 2 months later and said "they knew the Xbox One would sell" lol gamefaqs)

Regardless the PS4 has a slight edge right now (much like the X360 did last gen but PS3 battled back and created a virtual deadlock by end of gen, still got owned in software sales). The Xbox One has now overcome the initial hurdle and with games such as Titanfall being console exclusive looks full steam ahead in battling back.

What are your thoughts on how Microsoft has handled the initial negativity and how sales will shape up over the next few years? (No trolling from angry sony fans please)

Lol. And? I'm waiting for developers to take advantage of upgraded console hardware to do more with video games on a video game console, not watch cable television.
